DOGHOUSE SWINE: Faster Side of Normal: CD

You know sometimes when a CD is so bad that it’s good again? Well, unfortunately, this disc isn’t one of those. There aren’t really any redeeming qualities to this release. The cover and liner text are all so blurry they gave me a headache to look at them. The CD, though, has ten songs of plodding bar rock fodder with titles like “Bitch,” “Show Me How You Dance” and “Go to Hell.” To be fair, these guys look and sound like a bar band that might be playing in your local watering hole and they probably get the crowd tipping the bartender pretty good. That doesn’t much make for an interesting CD, though.
